Cape Town - Chelsea manager Antonia Conte says Nigerian international Victor Moses has become a key player for the Blues.

After three separate loan spells, with Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham, Moses has this season excelled with the London club following the arrival of Italian manager Conte, and has been used mainly as a wing-back rather than in a more familiar advanced role.

His latest impressive exploits came on Saturday, when he put in a Man-of-the-Match performance, and netted the winning goal, in a 2-1 win over league title rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.

"Victor is a good player. I saw him during the pre-season and I wanted to keep him in the squad. It is the same with Pedro, he (Moses) deserves to play. And he is playing some fantastic football for us. He is very important for us," Conte said.

The Super Eagles wide player played down his form, but did admit to enjoying life in west London this term.

"I am very pleased with the goal but the most important thing is the three points that we got. I thought they (Spurs) started very well and the goal they scored was a beautiful goal. There was nothing we could have done about that.

"But Pedro got us a beautiful goal and we got ourselves back into the game. As I said, the three points was the most important thing and we are very pleased to have gotten it.

"I have definitely found a home at Chelsea. It is my club and I am pleased to be playing this season."

The 25-year-old Moses has played 12 of Chelsea's 13 league matches this season, scoring three goals.
